About this book


Nuclear medicine plays a crucial role in patient care and this book is an essential guide for all practitioners to the many techniques that inform clinical management. The first part covers the scientific basis of nuclear medicine, the rest of the book deals with clinical applications. With a particular emphasis throughout on the practice of nuclear medicine, real-life practical problems encountered in nuclear medicine both in clinical practice and in the introduction of new techniques are addressed.

Following on the success of the previous edition, this book is also expanded by covering areas of development in nuclear medicine, such as PET, methods of tumor imaging and data processing. All illustrations for this new edition reflect current standards of image quality.

This practical approach results in a book which is invaluable to the radiologist, physician, physicist or technologist starting in nuclear medicine but also contains up-to-date advice for the most experienced practitioner.
